This somewhat spicy stove top chicken dish is a flavorful and attractive dish that can be adjusted based on your preferences—if you prefer less spice, use tomatoes instead of green chilies, or cut the creole seasoning in half. If you like your creole dishes to be smokin' hot, add some cayenne pepper or double the amount of green chilies.
Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a large fry pan and sauté chicken on each side until browned. Continue cooking over medium heat until chicken is cooked through.
In a separate pan, cook pepper and onion in remaining olive oil until tender.
Add flour and stir for 1 minute. Add the creole seasoning, bouillon, and green chilies and cook for an additional minute, stirring constantly.
Add milk a little at a time, stirring constantly between each addition. When sauce is starting to thicken, add lemon juice and sour cream and stir gently until sour cream is melted and mixture is hot. Keep warm until chicken is cooked.
When chicken is cooked, pour sauce over chicken and serve.
